BRAWLEY — La Gente Del Valle Imperial car club on Saturday celebrated 40 years, all of which have been spent serving the community while cruising in style.

However, those who passed by Hidalgo Hall during the celebration event would have no idea of the club’s award-winning rides, as members were instructed to leave their “better halves” at home for the night.

It's funny how this story is missing information and how these guys claim to be "founding fathers." Yet not even old enough to be the ones to give credit to. So who was the person from Oxnard who really deserves the credit? There is always another story and is looks like this certainly is the other story of course only told to benefit a few!! The IV press obviously didn't care to dig into the story. But would those guys even tell the full truth? Probably not since they already had the nerve to be put in the paper. This is a joke! This paper should do better but never does. Smh.
